Nose
Upside down pudding, Lyle's Golden Syrup, Crunchie Nut Cornflakes and milk chocolate. Some dried apricots, too.
Palate
More dried fruit, with the balance between this grain spirit and the fruity nature of the oak cask almost perfect. Enough savoury spice balanced with enough vanilla sweetness.
Finish
A little leathery, with nutmeg, but the dried fruit, coconut and tropical fruits last to leaving a mouth-watering finish.
Comment
Leaves the taste of a handful of Jelly Belly jelly beans in the mouth.

Nose
Restrained. Reminds of a garden scents after a heavy shower in summer. Faint note of honeysuckle.
Palate
Sweet, citrussy and grassy. Lemon tea. Blossom orange honey. Drying on a ginger note.
Finish
Medium long, dry and spicy.
Comment
The nose is shy but the palate delivers. A pleasant springtime dram, better appreciated neat.
